Home movies shot by a Michigan delegate to the 1956 Republican National Convention in San Francisco. Includes scenes of the city of San Francisco, Marin County and Mill Valley Air Force Station, and travel through the Interior West. A long sequence shows delegates at the Republican Convention, probably including dignitaries of the time, and long shots of President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Vice President Richard M. Nixon speaking from the podium.

Fun little trip as we take a train ride to SF (which is the best, I LOVE GOING ON THE TRAIN!) Then we have some shots of SF, but not of the usual, hey, how about some shots of the Cow Palace?!? Hmmm, seems these folks were on a mission.. (or just on a very limited schedule to go anywhere else beyond that vicinity) and then the Republican National Convention! There's some good shots of that, and then finally the Grand Canyon! So ya, a great fun reel!
